From the title, who's using one that's effective against the sun and most important will not let you feel uncomfortable like sticky or oily.. Pls recommend..

I'm using this, recommended by the bros on this forum:

http://www.laroche-posay.com/products-treatments/Anthelios/Anthelios-XL-SPF-50-Velvety-Lotion-p3919.aspx

I'm allergic to most sunblock, but thankfully this works fine without causing any rashes and is non-sticky either

Most of the major Watsons, Guardian and Unity outlet sells it. I got mine during the Guardian 20% storewide offer at Suntec, works out to be round 30++. Some of the outlets have 5ml samples which you can request (depends on the store assistants, some just ask you to use the testers on the shelf).

Another slightly cheaper brand you can try is the Avene sunblock, John Little and Robinsons sell it too, so if there a major sale like the recent one at JL, its actually very cheap.

Cheers

I use Anthelios too, the fluid one for the face. It's a non-greasy fluid and doesn't feel sticky.

I switched to La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL (SPF 50) recently. Cheap and good. Even got free membership to accumulate points to get free gifts. Would also recommend their thermal spring water.

Maybe the sales did not mention it to you. All you need to do is fill up a form and contact details. So next time when you make a purchase, they add up the amount. I think when you reached $200, you get claim some free gifts. I gave my purchase to my colleague who claim some sunblock lotion etc. The La Roche counter I went is the one at Vivo City (the guardian opp Cedele). The La Roche auntie is quite nice.

Ron81,

You might also like to try the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock. Comes in various SPFs, the higher the number the more expensive. SPF 50 costs $19.90 the last time I bought it, but I discovered it is cheaper at JB pharmacies. I too was looking for something non-greasy especially when I start to sweat in the sun. Discovered this by chance after stumbling upon a review at a ladies blog. If a lady has no allergic reaction, then us men with thicker skin should have no problem right?

It's a thick cream that dries in seconds after rubbing in to very slight powdery feel. Apply too much and it leaves a white residue, just have to rub a little more to be rid of it. And it also re-surfaces as a white residue when you sweat if you don't rub it in well or over apply too much. For me, a four inch strip is enough to cover one whole arm that doesn't leave me sun burned after a round or have any white residue appearing when I start to sweat.

I've included two links to help you decide further. The first is a blog review, and the second are user reviews. The first of the user reviews is of a woman who bought the sunblock for her husaband.

Just to add on, I've also tried the clear alcohol based spray ones. They're also non-greasy but the downsides are that they sting if applied to broken skin, leaves the skin feeling tight and dry, and protects for 9 holes at the most, leaving me burnt at the end 18 holes if I didn't re-apply.

I was quite happy with the alcohol based spray one until I discovered the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch and switched. Love that it's inexpensive too, just did a quick calculation, Singapore S$19.90, JB S$15.65 (RM$36.80). Very Happy

Bro, interesting table about SPF, you pay much more, but you don't get more protection.

SPF rating - % of UVB light blocked
(measures UVB)
2 - 50.00%
4 - 75.00%
10 - 90.00%
30 - 96.67%
50 - 98.00%
70 - 98.57%
100 - 99.00%
